Top notch research

I work in molecular biology, and that has given me an understanding of cellular metabolism. In gaining this understanding, I have come to realize how horrific our American diets are. Unfortuneately, a few well meaning and misguided nutritionists and scientists earlier in teh twentieth century tried to reform our eating habits. These habits stuck, and now we have a country of fat unhealthy citizens. The more I read about nutrition, the more I understand what is wrong with our eating habits. The author has doen her research and has a very firm grasp on the concept of cellular metabolism. She references actual scientific studies that have been published. More and more literature is coming out debunking the food pyramid and extolling the health benefits of a high protein, low SIMPLE carb diet. This is not to be confused with diets such as Atkins, where all carbs are evil. Or diets such as weight watchers which encourage the consumption of processed foods. Or diets such as the Zone, whose recommended caloric intake is not enough to sustain basic cellular function. Diets such as South Beach are actually good models of a healthy eating plan. And amino acids, as Ms. Ross explains in her book, are the building blocks of proteins, whish are essential for our body to function. While her book does skip around, and can be a little hard to follow, it offers sound advice. Advice that sadly the rest of the world is slow to follow, out of ignorance.

It is like a magic wand least for me! Her recommendations for amino acid supplementation worked incredibly. Although only 10 - 15 pounds overweight, I have dieted and "not dieted" since I was a teenager. By 45, I have learned that dieting, even moderate programs such as Weight Watchers, are only something I can follow for so long. I would always inexplicably binge, feel completely confused and completely without "will power" and note one more failure. Though I would prefer to be slimmer, I have always been more upset by the fact that I couldn't "control myself" or follow through with a decision to eat healthfully and not binge. What wierd, psychological thing was causing me to do this?? Hello Dr. Ross! If only one, tiny thing stands out as a "magic wand" experience (and there are more than one) it was her "emergency" recommendation to handle cravings. Open a capsule of L-Glutemine and let it dissolve under your tongue. I have never experienced such an about-face when it came to fighting the urge to EAT IT! From reading some reviews by others, I would encourage readers to follow her recommendations in full, not "sort of." Certainly everybody's body chemistry is different, but you will not be giving this program a fair trial if you approach it haphazardly. That said, it is a very simple program to follow: eat lots of protein, and lots and lots of vegtables and fruit, and take your amino supplements. No rigid combinations or measuring is required. You only need to make sure you're eating enough protein and veggies. (It sounded like a disaster waiting to happen for me - I never ate LOTS of either of those things!) Yes, the supplements do cost, but if you are a binge eater, believe me you'll make up the cost on all the food you DON'T buy any more. Even if you are a vegetarian (for ethical or health reasons) consider this program. If you are as frustrated and demoralized as I was, it's really worth a try.

I can't recommend this book more....

I've been learning nutrition for many years and worked with a nutritionist as both client and student. This book contains all the information that I've been taught on causes of weight gain and inability to lose weight, plus it explains it to the reader in simple terms. It individualizes the problem and makes it easy for someone to understand and apply the information for better health. I'm very very impressed. I have an educational nutritional website and I've linked my article on weightloss to this book so my readers can buy it. Thank you, Julia Ross, M.A. Chris, Founder, McVitamins

Finally! Sane, sensible and SAFE advice that works!

After years of yo-yo dieting, I've finally found something that makes sense. I've suspected for years I had low thyroid function, but the blood test my doctor ran showed me in the "normal" range. This book explains how that test (the TSH) can be misleading and what other tests can be used to PROPERLY diagnose thyroid and other hormonal imbalances. I started taking three simple amino acid supplements, and I felt better within 48 hours! Really! My energy is better, my sugar cravings are virtually gone, and I don't have all the muscle tension and aches that I used to have every day! This book offers sane, sensible and SAFE advice (I checked on this!) on using nutritional supplements to help re-balance the body's chemistry so that it can work better. It also recommends seeing a medical doctor to have certain tests run, to see if prescription medication is needed. The book has chapters on how to help problems with mood, energy, sugar/starch cravings, recurrent yeast infections, food allergies, and disgestion. It also reaffirms in a positive, supportive way that weight problems are not due to lack of willpower, but can be caused by our body's chemical imbalances.
